Pregnancy and Back Pain Management with Chiropractic care in Napa

Because of the additional weight and stress including rapid fetal development, hormonal changes, and an increased laxity in connective ligaments, on the framework of the body in pregnant women, many feel low back pain during pregnancy.

Chiropractic adjustments can help lower the incidence of pain in the low back and legs, and between the shoulder blades. In some cases, fewer headaches and problems with nausea and elimination may also result. Many chiropractors care for expectant mothers in the regular course of their daily practices. This leads to an overall improvement in health for both mother and baby.

It’s important during pregnancy that nerve impulses flow from the brain to all parts of the body. A slightly out-of-place vertebra can create nerve irritation that snarls the body’s communication system. Using gentle spinal adjustments, the chiropractic doctor can relieve this nerve irritation, allowing the body’s energy to flow freely again and eliminate periodic pain through nature’s own healing power! Your chiropractic doctor will use special, modified techniques during your pregnancy to make your spinal adjustments easy and comfortable.

Chiropractic care can:
1. Correct vertebral misalignment and relieve pressure with gentle and effective adjustments.
2. Help ensure that pelvic bones are properly aligned, facilitating a quicker, easier delivery.
3. Re-establish the natural position and mobility of the joints.
4. Provide freedom from interference of normal nerve energy which is vital for the development of a healthy baby and mother.
